Stuart brings more than a decade and a half of creative direction experience to the Redirect team. He is a graduate of Arizona State University’s Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, where he received a Bachelors of Science in Design in Graphic Design with a minor in Business. While finishing school he worked as one of two designers for The Fiesta Bowl, The State of Arizona’s largest collection of tourist events, where he helped lead art and creative direction for the organization’s 40+ events including five college football bowl games and the 2007 Florida/Ohio State National Championship Game. After graduation, Stuart worked for over four and a half years at R Squared Graphic Design and Advertising, a Phoenix graphic design studio, where he creative and art directed projects for over 50 local and national clients. Most recently he spent over a year at a Salt Lake City startup venture, Experticity (now Expert Voice), where he led the marketing creative and product UI for the company’s products.
Above all, Stuart encourages organizations to fight against the same boring creative that every competitor is producing because no one ever stood out by blending in. At Redirect, he leads the creative team to ensure the highest standards of creative communication are achieved in every client project. He has helped lead the creative direction for all of Redirect’s recent clientele including major branding and business development projects for Tracy Aviary, AdventureMed, The State of Utah, Salt Lake County, Proper Brewing, City Creek Reserve Inc., Clark Planetarium, Kiitos Brewing, First American Exchange, InteriorWorx, Smith’s Tix, The Habit Burger Grill, Market Street Grill, Intermountain Healthcare, SLC Golf, RLL, the Eccles Theater, and more. When he isn’t working or enveloped by creative thought you can find Stuart teaching graphic design at his alma mater, having deep conversations with his toddler son, or having his nights and weekends ruined by his pathetically-inept, but still beloved, Cleveland sports teams.
